    So far so good running Windows 7 (which was a nice surpirse :razz:). However, just wanted to know if I will get into trouble when I decide to go downgrade back to Windows XP.

    I created a couple of user accounts in Windows 7 and moved the documents folder of each user to another partition. Windows is on C and the data now resides on D (user A) and E (user B). If I would format C and reinstall XP will I still be able to access the data on D and E? The reason for asking is I am not that familiar with the way Windows 7/NTFS :confused: handles rights. I noticed I am already unable to access/rename file whilst running Windows 7.

    I want to make sure I won't lose any data :eek: due to inaccessibility as a result of rights issues. Thanks for all the help...
